Since June 8 2008 SE Klaipėda State Seaport Authority starts to organize for Klaipėda citizens and the guests the cognitive port surveys on a ship „Forelle“ free of charge. They will take place in June-July. 
In June-July this year SE Klaipėda State Seaport Authority will organize a number of free-of-charge cognitive excursions on a ship „Forelle“ around Klaipėda port waters for Klaipėda citizens and the guests. It is anticipated that the excursions that will take place on Fridays and Sundays will receive attention and there will participate those who are willing to know more about the port. During the cognitive excursions (duration about 1 h) Klaipėda citizens and the guests will be able to see port terminals and listen to the narration of a guide about the port. 
The goal of this action is to directly and visually acquaint the society with the activities of Klaipėda port, its possibilities and perspectives, unveil the economic – social advantages provided by maritime industry, specifics of work and activities of maritime community, reduce the reticence of port territories for society, add to consolidation of the citizens and maritime community and improvement of image of seafarers` profession
